Delightfully salty and lemony, this dish uses dark meat from the chicken, which is best suited for braises. Be sure to use bone-in thighs for outstanding flavor.
Compound butter is a great friend to a home cook. Ranging from sweet to savory, it can be blended with honey, fruits and warm spices and slathered on scones and breads or mixed with fragrant herbs and rubbed on a chicken waiting to roast. This recipe, in particular, is ideal for spreading on warm, crusty baguettes before dinner, smeared over grilled lamb or mixed into warm rice.
